This item is unavailable
SKU: 9229



This Edwardian Silver fob medal pendant is steeped in sporting history. The text intricately engraved on her front refers to a Liverpool gala, in which a tug of war competition took place! Encased in an ornately formed wreath, we are super intrigued about who this noble medal was once awarded to.

A fun fact, a Liverpool team formed of police officers won a Silver Olympic medal in the 1908 games! No longer an Olympic sport, any collector will jump at the chance of incorporating this niche medal pendant into their collection. Fully hallmarked, she makes a wonderful antique piece.

VERY GOOD- EXCELLENT: This Edwardian Silver fob medal pendant is in very good condition throughout. There is little to fault, her Silver is bright, both engravings and hallmarks are clear to the naked eye. She does have surface wear throughout, commensurate with age, this is to be expected from an authentic antique like herself. Boasting a chunky bale, she would look fabulous suspended from a substantial Silver chain.
